Rising pop sensation Betta Lemme has just dropped her brand-new single “Play”, a bop that’s sure to be your official summer jam
For her new single entitled “Play,” Betta enlisted co-writers Jesse Saint John (Britney Spears, Charli XCX, Kim Petras) and Danny L Harle (Carly Rae Jepsen, Superfruit) – a quintessential pairing alongside her versatility and genre-binding. Marked as one to watch in 2019 – the singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist is best known for seamlessly singing in three languages (English, Italian, and French), her viral single “Bambola,” as well as her contribution on Sofi Tukker’s smash hit “Awoo.” In just one year since her arrival onto the scene, her love for language and europop has connected millions across the globe.
When asked about “Play”, Betta Lemme elaborated:
“When writing “Play”, I pictured how nice it would be as a lonely kid for someone to reach out at a party or in the school yard and include me. I’m quite shy..I know deep inside, if I just had the courage to go on the dance floor or ask a friend to hang, I’d transform and have the best time. The happiness would be contagious. I imagine that if the world displayed more of this inclusive behavior, happiness would become contagious for everyone. I hope that when people listen to “Play”, they let go of inhibitions and social anxieties and just have fun with themselves and each other.”
Every Betta Lemme song is a movie, or at least part of a movie, a scene set for supreme drama and impetuous romance and sometimes a little lovely tragedy. Each of her forthcoming songs are sprung from an elaborate dream world where her icons are her closest companions, all designated an essential role – Freddie Mercury is her father, Gaga’s her older sister and Liberace is her decorator.
“I’m just creating, creating, creating.” Betta says. “I’m taking my time with everything because I don’t want to ever come out with cheap sounds – I want to come out with beautiful songs for you to dance or cry to.”
